Newsarama Best Shots Reviews Pilot Season: Demonic #1
Newsarama's Russ Burlingame reviews Pilot Season: Demonic #1 in Best Shots:
Pilot Season: Demonic #1 (Published by Top Cow; Review by Russ Burlingame): In spite of having a main character whose ethical code is somewhere south of Deadpool’s and who looks on the cover to be the love child of Edward Scissorhands and the dude from “Haunt” (conveniently, one of Kirkman’s 89 other monthly books), the concept of this title—that this guy will allow a demon to rule his life and will do anything for her in exchange for sparing him from having to kill his wife and daughter—is something that you kinda want to wonder why The Spectre never thought of two or three years ago. That said, it’s an interesting book that raises some interesting issues and while I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s smart, it’s certainly got a hook. The surprise on the last page is a long time coming, though, and I don’t feel particularly driven to see what happens next.
